Location and Background
The historic village of Walkerburn dates to the
purchase of land by Henry Ballantyne in 1846 to build a
tweed mill and workers' housing - as was unveiled in
1854. The village is bounded by various scenic
landscape features including the Plora Wood (ancient
oak woodland), the Kirnie Law reservoir and River
Tweed. These features support activities like
hillwalking, cycling, fishing and equestrian pursuits.
The Southern Upland Way walking trail passes via
Walkerburn. Whilst Glentress and Innerleithen provide
some of the most popular mountain biking in Scotland,
including the Red Bull Downhill Project and Inerleithen
Uplift. A Peeblesshire Trout Fishing Association permit
allows fishing on approximately 23 miles of the River
Tweed and approximately 5 miles of the Lyne Water.
There are a variety of membership categories on offer
at Macdonald Cardrona Hotel, Golf & Spa.
The village is 8 miles east of Peebles, passing through
Cardrona and Innerleithen. Walkerburn is 10 miles
west from the Galashiels Railway Station / Borders
Railway to Edinburgh. Bus services provide
connections to Peebles, Galashiels and onward to
Edinburgh. The village itself includes a primary school,
general store / post office, café, and restaurants at
Windlestraw and The George Hotel. The village has
about 450 homes and a population of over 650
permanent residents. The nearest Highest School is
located in Peebles. The Walkerburn Rugby Football
Club was founded in 1884 and continues to compete.
